The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), issued a written ministerial statement on 24 January 2011, Hansard, columns 1-2WS. The southern Sudan referendum is a momentous step towards the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA). We welcome the positive reactions of the north and of observers as we await the formal results. We will support north and south as they work on the remaining CPA issues. We continue to support efforts to establish a lasting peace for Darfur.
